With all the line juggling we've done, you'd expect him to get more minutes. 2 highlight reel shootout goals, nope, not enough.
Callahan has shown to be the best of our small, speedy forwards. He works hard and has the best positioning instincts and overall ability. Dawes gets some chances, but is never in position to score. Fine, take Dawes out, put Prucha in; same player, different name.
I think Prucha is the weakest link. It's heartbreaking to see a 30-goal scorer fade so quickly, but the desperate hangers-on have to accept reality. He's lost it, and it's not coming back.
It's too soon to trade Dawes, but we should be concerned. I say give him a bit longer and then send him down and call up Korpikoski.
As for Fritsche, he's done nothing good... nor bad. So play him as a bottom six winger and just keep him skating. He's no less than Dawes or Prucha at this point.
